The Galletta’s Greenhouse Racing Kart #5 is a Single-Wheel-Drive Racing Kart built in the year 2000, and is one of the most successful karts in the fleet. It was built from scratch by Wesley James “Ogre” Stevens and Matthew Stevens.

It was originally driven by Christopher Galletta Stevens, who piloted it to the 2000 and 2001 Galletta’s Greenhouse Klassic wins along with the 2000 and 2001 Galletta’s Greenhouse Track Championships right out of the gate. It has won many feature races at Galletta’s Greenhouse Backyard Karting Speedway with drivers such as Chris Stevens, Kyle Reuter, Rob Jimenez, and Joe Sereno behind the wheel.  Although it ran several races at Oswego Kartway with different drivers at the helm, it never won a race there. It was rebuilt in 2006-07 to be lower to the ground to race at Oswego Kartway and to be less prone to flipping.
